Huawei has released a complete range of full-scenario 5G wireless product solutions at the 2018 Mobile World Congress. These products support all 5G frequency bands and cover different types of sites including tower sites, pole-mounted sites, and small cells to suit deployment needs in diverse scenarios.
C-band is the key spectrum for realizing continuous networking and ubiquitous xGbps experience in the 5G era. Huawei's newly released 64T64R and 32T32R Massive MIMO AAU product portfolio boasts the highest configuration in the industry. These AAUs feature 3D-beamforming so that beams can be flexibly adjusted in both the vertical and horizontal planes.
Huawei’s wireless products feature an integrated, compact, and lightweight design. These attributes greatly relax the requirements on the antenna installation platform while helping to reduce engineering complexity. Meanwhile, the optical interface speed is less than 25 Gbps, which promotes these solutions as an ideal candidate for large-scale 5G deployment.
In addition to the 5G tower site product solutions with the highest specifications in the industry, Huawei also debuted 5G EasyBlink at MWC. This solution can be flexibly deployed on multiple types of surfaces, including street lamp poles and walls. The volume and weight of 5G C-band EasyBlink is ideally suited for deployment on a variety of poles to fill coverage holes and boost hotspot capacity.
Huawei released the industry's first digital 5G LampSite to serve diverse indoor scenarios. It is not only backwards-compatible with 4G and supports 4T4R multi-antenna mode, but also boasts integration in four aspects. These include the integration of all sub-6 GHz bands, CAT6A and fiber, 4G and 5G, enhanced broadband services and future IoT services.
In the 5G era, wireless sites will be deployed in hybrid networking scenarios consisting of a centralized radio access network (C-RAN) and distributed radio access network (D-RAN). Huawei released CBU5900 as part of its C-RAN solution. CBU5900 features the centralized deployment of a large number of baseband units. BBU5900 is the most highly integrated site solution currently available in the industry. It supports all RATs (2G, 3G, 4G, and 5G) and all frequency bands, and offers several-Gbps backhaul capability to meet 5G services' long-term development needs.
The first wave of 5G deployment will take place in buildings and densely populated urban areas. Diverse site forms are therefore required to accommodate the needs of complex deployment scenarios. The full range of 5900 series 5G product solutions launched and exhibited at MWC 2018 target full-scenario deployment, offering a ubiquitous xGbps access experience, and helping to turn the promise of a 5G experience revolution into reality.
